URL Redirects With Encoded Characters

Last update: 27 September, 2016

Unusual looking URLs cause a lot of confusion as to the best practice for redirecting them when using Yoast SEO Premium. Our plugin will accept both the encoded and unencoded character.

If the redirect is not working with the one version character, try substituting the other version.

Encoded Character Unencoded Character
%E2%80%A6
%20 (space)
%25 %
A complete list of encoded characters is available here.
